    Pros

    Scheduale - you can plan all your year based on the days off that you have

    Cons

    Pressure - lots and lots of pressure to sell things on board
    Contract - in the beggining you don't have a contract directly with ryanair
    Payment - you only earn based on your flying hours, so if you don't fly as much, your payment will be really low
    Transfer - it's really hard to get a transfer to some destinations

    Advice to Management

    To listen to their employees as they have some concerns that should be solved.
